Blog: Book Update

< previous next >
I had a meeting with my Editor on Thursday night... well, I went to the pub with him and at certain points we talked about The Book, but mostly we had a bit of a RANT about diverse subjects, and a MOST pleasant time was had. In between all that the BOOK NEWS is Quite Good - he says people seem to LIKE it and be KEEN, although he won't get word from anyone who Has A Say until a week on Tuesday, and that the main problem seems to be that I'm not actually famous. That IS sort of the point of the book, but we agreed that we would try and DO something about it, so what I've got to do this weekend is come up with an Exciting Paragraph and some BULLET POINTS detailing what the whole thing's about and what's IN it.

It's all a bit strange really, one more step on the COMPRESSION of it all - I started out with a huge pile of diaries, webpages etc which i shrank down to a TAUT 60 pages about My Life In Rock, which i used to shrink it further into chapters, and now I'm taking all THAT and making into aforesaid paragraph and bullet points. I fully expect, by the end of the month, to be expressing my life style in a single GESTURE of FACIAL EXPRESSION - hopefully it will be a GRIN!

How about using the Seinfeld approach; "it's a book about nothing"? That will save time in prepaing the summary ;) BTW, just back from holiday myself now so hope to catch you at a gig sometime in the not too distant ...
